I have chosen for my ontology, critical realism, and for my epistemology, social constructionism. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves." Why not comment that drinking a Jamba Juice isn't needed to do science as that observation is as relevant to what is being discussed as well. Even withinphilosophy, the term… In effect, it is brainwashing by a belief. Discussing "Epistemological Realism vs. Epistemological Idealism" has nothing to do with requiring scientists to carry religious labels. These four general frameworks provide the root or base from which the various educational philosophies are derived. Another exceptionally important talk on LDS epistemology was given by Elder Dallin H.

Madsen (at the time he was the Chair of the Philosophy Department at BYU) in which he addresses this exact question. Idealism puts forth the argument that reality, as we perceive it, is a mental construct. I have said that religious scientist is an oxymoron, now, you the second one, has amply proved my observation. Look, I would like you to stick around since you present an alternative view which I appreciate but I do have to limit the level of personal attacks.All the most respected science venues will flat out reject papers if they contain blatant personal attacks. At its best the act of proselytizing is the act of one, who has had a singular religious experience, striving to instill in another the desire for a similar experience.But again, what I want to know is whether QL42 means to imply that processes like intuition or inspiration fit within the empirical realist's toolkit. I practice yoga of breath and meditation leading me to silence of my Spirit, and by the way, this is the reality of us all, to be experienced by us all, uniquely. Because we are experiencing an objective reality, no one can claim exclusive insight into reality that others cannot access. Epistemological realism is a philosophical position, a subcategory of objectivism, holding that what you know about an object exists independently of our mind. JS,In your rambling post, you used the selective deconstruction like QL42 used before, both unsuccessfuly. But note that historically our own university (BYU) has a reputation for punishing those whose learning leads to questioning religious authority (which is why I think BYU is "closed minded" primarily).I do think it is justifiable to believe in God, and I think faith is important (it is in my own life) and I use Mormonism as my vehicle of choice to increase my faith. Ancient1, well now you are going to have to define what science is as I almost wet my pants laughing at the idea that since orangutans swing through trees they must be better at doing experimental science than those around here.Oh, Oh, let me guess! :).

Epistemological realism claims that it is possible to obtain knowledge about mind‐independent reality. Do you think that intuition and inspiration as described here fit within an objectivist paradigm? On one hand I want to help but on the other hand the concept is so trivial it is hard to not sound condescending. QL42,I find the last paragraph of your post troubling. In short, epistemological realism holds the explanation to distinct the difference between photograph and painting. Our scientific publications are publicly available and there has never been an issue with a referee that anything about being LDS has hindered top-notch science being done. Wow, I've never actually met anyone who ever claimed to be a strict idealist. I will spare you: you can hide behind Godel's incompleteness.

(Although, if you are going to be doing good science it would be nice if you would back up your concerns with some data. I think all people should be proud to be scientists regardless of religious affiliation just as I think heart surgens should be proud of being heart surgens independent of their religious affiliation.I fail to see any hard evidence that religion is effecting the quality of science coming from scientists who are persistently publishing in peer reviewed journals. If it states in a manual that these are myths - not to be taken literally - all of a sudden they've opened the flood gates for what else in scripture might be a myth. Update, QL42 posted a response between when I started writing mine and when I published it. Science of belief?I know you all do good science, but we all have heard of data manipulation to meet the beliefs of scientists. Do you want me to be helpful or not?Now, it turns out Godel showed these things that a formal system fails to prove are true, not both true and false at the same time so I'm confused how you can imagine something being both true and false.Now, and I'm trying to not sound condescending here, but a member of the set of things that is true is not also false. Epistemological idealism, of which the Kantian scholar Norman Kemp Smith’s Prolegomena to an Idealist Theory of Knowledge (1924) is an excellent example, covers all idealistic theories of epistemology, or knowledge.

Idealism vs. Realism. I don't know... the divide between the Platonic and Aristotelian views is something I am just starting to consider.

That its experience is due to the sensory abilities of the human mind and not because reality exists in itself, as an independent entity. "Inspiration" on the other hand is where spirit speaks directly to spirit. QL42-Having not completely finished your post yet (it's long, gonna take me a while to digest it), I feel like you and Ancient 1 are really talking past each other.I think you're talking about the plausibility of believing/knowing things outside of the current scientific method framed in various schools of philosophy. Metaphysical realism, this book has repeatedly noted, is a claim to know the way the world is, more precisely to know the mind … I'm *more* interested in people who will propose interesting ideas than those who just go around being a critic calling everyone else idiots or brainwashed.So, do you have any interesting ideas to present that we can use to answer these questions or are you waiting for me to put forward answers so you can go back to name-calling and criticizing?

"Consider Mormonism." Further, you have fallen to lowest level of argument, and that is selective deconstruction, at which you fail miserably.Just as objective world view holder of yours, a megalomaniac demands that people follow.

In the above dramatization, ancient1 being the one calming dogs are smarter than humans is under the burden to define what he means, not me.But, just like in real life, the ancient1 in the story makes a claim without providing the necessary information needed to weigh the claim and then calls me a "know-it-all" because I would like to know where he is coming from. But now I want to go prove it to myself. Why don’t you look at the cases of misguided in your own religion (not faith, because a faith is absolutely personal and does not involve others).There are no two identical experiences, so, your hallucination about god (note small g), is really your nightmare.

Both approaches benefit from verification, and to an extent you can apply the realist's tools to the data gathered using the idealist's tools, but the data themselves don't meet the rigorous standards the realist has. Because they can eat food they must be better at computer programming as well!So, let us idiots in on the wise definition of science that would lead one to conclude that since orangutans swing through trees they must be therefore better at experimental science!I'm beginning to think you don't know what science is, just how to throw words like myopic around as if that constitutes a clever argument.
